I have one...

All I can say thus far is WOW!!!!

Build quality.. SUPREME
Speed... FAST... like REALLY fast
Setup... So far has been a breeze, the Facebook, Ovi, Accuweather and Reuters Widgets are preinstalled.

The Accuweather widget discovered my position within 30 seconds of turn the device on and had the weather right there... VERY quick.
The Facebook app is so much faster and more stable for the same app on the 5800

Transferring 20GB of music onto it we speak so will have a bit more of a play tonight and report back with more thoughts..

I am lucky to be in the employ of the worlds best manufacturer.

Was just about to say its not available to the public yet.

Any word on pricing, or if New Zealand is going to be one of the 75 countries included in the launch?

Do you have the 850mhz or 900mhz version? (hence are you using it on Telecom XT or Vodafone?)

And what city do you reside in, any chance of coming over and having a sneak peak?

And is your sister Kelly?
